The conventional period romantic drama has good details of the period and some fine dramatic moments, that at least kept it from being a bomb.

Effectively conveys how World War II changed men, women work and family
May 24, 2003
The film certainly can't seem to decide whether it wants to be a genial romantic comedy or something more truthful, but it is never less than watchable.
